Google Pixel 4a review: All the phone you need, none of what you don't

The Pixel 3a wasn't $400 smartphone perfection, but when it launched at Google I/O last year, it came closer to the mark than any phone in the US had before. That is, until the iPhone SE upstaged it this spring. With the Pixel 4a, Google is fighting an uphill battle against Apple—and I'm not going to try to convince you they've won it, either. But after two weeks with the new entry-level Pixel, I'm convinced there is so little left for Google to improve on this phone that it hardly matters. If price is an object, the Pixel 4a is the smartest smartphone you can buy today.

Pixel 4a vs. Pixel 3a: What's new in Google's 2020 budget phone?

The Pixel 3a was, undeniably, one of the best phones of 2019. Google's slick software and borderline magical camera processing made this unassuming budget device more appealing than phones that cost twice as much. We were hoping to see its successor this spring, but the Pixel 4a is just now official (and you should read our review of it). It shares a lot with the Pixel 3a, but it makes a few notable changes.

The Google Pixel 4a is official: Pricing, specs, release date, and more

After a nearly interminable wait, Google's hotly-anticipated Pixel 4a is finally official (and making a very solid impression). Following up on last year's Pixel 3a (our Android Police 2019 phone of the year), the new 4a packs a Snapdragon 730G, 5.8" OLED screen, the usual amazing Pixel camera, 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, and all for an even lower price than last year: just $350. Pre-orders open today with availability set for August 20th, and a 5G version is also planned for later this fall.

Google's first Pixel Buds feature drop will arrive next month with fix for audio cut out problems

The Pixel Buds have only just launched in Canada, the UK, and many more international markets, but the good news don't stop there: Google promises a feature drop update to the true wireless earbuds, according to information the company relayed to Forbes. Along with unspecified new capabilities, the update is supposed to finally fix the notorious audio cut out problems the Buds are plagued with, which Google already promised a month ago.

June updates for Google Pixels are here with plenty of bugfixes

Google's monthly Pixel software update is now rolling out, including June 2020's security patches and changes announced as part of this quarter's Pixel Feature Drop. The OTA should be rolling out in the traditional sense shortly, but in the meantime, you can sideload the update yourself, or peruse the huge list of Pixel functional patches — they're almost all just fixes, but there's a ton of them.

Pixel Buds 2 review, one month later: Too many compromises

It's been a month and change since Google launched its first true wireless earbuds. When I first got my hands on the Pixel Buds, I was struck by their fit and finish, comfort, and sound quality, but nagging problems like audible interference at low volumes and short battery life left me feeling lukewarm on the whole. I've been using them regularly ever since, but unfortunately, my opinion hasn't changed: there are too many compromises in the 2020 Pixel Buds to justify their price for most buyers.

Google's Sound Amplifier app now works with Bluetooth headphones (APK Download)

Google's Sound Amplifier takes sound picked up by your phone's microphones and pipes it directly into your earbuds. It's a great idea, but its utility has historically been limited by the app only working with wired headsets. Version 3.0, rolling out now, lifts that restriction, finally letting users listen through Bluetooth headphones.

Killer deals: Pixel 3a and 3a XL are down to $279 and $319 (up to $160 off)

Rumors of this year's Pixel 4a abound, but the device's release date is still up for question. In the meantime, the 2019 Pixel 3a is still sitting tight in a quickly emptying field of decent midrange phones with excellent cameras. When it launched, it was a tremendous value at $399 and even gained our smartphone of the year award, but discounts have made its appeal even more undeniable. Today, it has dropped to its lowest ever price: $279 for the 3a and $319 for the 3aXL.

Samsung Galaxy A51 review: A surprise Pixel 4a challenger

With the Galaxy S20 series starting a thousand dollars, many cash-strapped Samsung fans are probably considering more affordable upgrade options this year. And apparently, Samsung anticipated this (and if it didn't, it sure knows now), as it's making more of its low-end and mid-range lineup available in the US than ever before. Not only did it give last year's S10 series a price cut while continuing to keep it on sale alongside the S20, but it also debuted the Galaxy S10 Lite in America, adding yet more choices to its growing smartphone portfolio.

But Samsung has dug even deeper into bag o' phones, with the mid-range and mid-range-plus Galaxy A51 and A71.
